2010 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de Mon Aïeul, Pierre Usseglio

"The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul (cropped at 12-16 hectoliters per hectare) comes from the estate’s finest vineyards in the southern part of the appellation (Les Grandes Serres), the eastern sector (the famed La Crau) and the northern sector (Guigasse). The wine is aged primarily in stainless steel tanks with a small percent (less than 20%) kept in 600-liter demi-muids. Despite the 16.5% natural alcohol, there is not a trace of heat in this wine. It is stunningly concentrated with great intensity as well as classic blueberry, peppery, incense, camphor, fig and licorice characteristics. Rich and full-bodied with slightly more freshness than their profound 2007, the 2010 Mon Aieul should age effortlessly for two decades." 97 points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

2010 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de Mon Aïeul, Pierre Usseglio
Domaine Pierre Usseglio

This well-regarded estate is run by brothers Thierry and Jean-Pierre Usseglio, who divide their time between cellar and vineyard. Having taken over the domaine from their father, Pierre, in 1998, these hardworking brothers have gradually modernised the cellars. They’ve sought to improve quality without compromising the traditional style espoused by their father. Usseglio wines are complex, profound and aromatic wines; they’ve rightly acquired world-wide recognition and acclaim.
